Domestic Violence Canton and how Modern Hearing Solutions Helped

Did you know that the Domestic Violence hotline in Canton received 4,000 calls last year?  When local business owner Eric Mounts heard this, he didn’t waste any time responding to this cry for help. He quickly rallied the resources of his company, Modern Hearing Solutions, and gifted financial support to the Domestic Violence Project in the amount of $500.00.

The local Domestic Violence Project office offers guidance for safety planning, crisis counseling and information – the lifeline people need to understand the dynamics of domestic violence. (The Hotline telephone number is below.) The number of women who need their help in Canton alone is surprising. DVPI reports that in a year they shelter about 300 women and their children in safe houses – 6500 children spent the night in a DVPI shelter just last year.

Domestic Violence Project, Inc. (DVPI) is a private, non-profit organization established in 1978 in Canton, Ohio. The organization is committed to providing a strong, comprehensive safety net for the families in our community who are experiencing domestic violence. DVPI clients are always welcomed by caring and compassionate staff who offer supportive the services necessary to establish an abuse-free lifestyle for their clients.

The agency’s comprehensive programming, under the executive directorship of Melissa Pearce, addresses a myriad of needs by providing services such as the 24-hour confidential hot-line, emergency shelters in Canton and Massillon, prevention and educational services, support and legal advocacy, on-going and special topic support and the Renew Counseling and Recovery Center. A big portion of their energy goes into breaking the cycle of domestic violence because they know that this can only be accomplished through awareness and prevention. Currently, DVPI provides prevention education in schools, through outreach, distribution of literature, making speakers available and providing sensitivity training. Through their efforts in conjunction with a variety of community partners such as Modern Hearing Solutions, DVPI touches thousands of lives a year by offering our community a safe refuge for victims of domestic violence and their children, where healing begins and hope is restored to those in our area who are experiencing the harsh realities of domestic violence.

Grateful for the recent support shown by Eric Mounts and Modern Hearing Solutions, Melissa Pearce wrote, “We truly appreciate your generosity and the courage and hope it inspires in the people we serve.” Serving others brings out the best in all of us, and these two community-minded organizations lead the parade in Canton, Ohio.
